Attitude Check

When I compare this Fall with last Fall, there’s so much difference, it’s hard to explain. Last year, I had one disappointing circumstance after another. When I look back, there was only one or two really “good” things I could point to that brought me joy. I was frustrated. When things don’t go the way […]

Disappointments and Expectations—Part III

This whole fall season has been frustrating and disappointing to me, in many ways. All professionally, not personally. I have the greatest husband in all the world and we’ve married 29 years.

Cracked-Pot

We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot.
